8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Cynthia Serikaku on September 8, 2009
Format: Hardcover
"Homeland Insecurity" is that rare book that combines flawless scholarship with riveting human interest. Far from being a dry academic tome, Dr. Cainkar's landmark study humanizes the Arab- and Muslim-American post-9/11 experience. Her interviews with members of Chicagoland's Arab/Muslim community, based on long-cultivated relationships, result in a compelling look into daily life in this community after September 11, 2001. Dr. Cainkar's incisive analysis, especially in the sections relating to racialization and gender, will have the reader nodding in agreement...and amazement. This book clearly sets the standard in the field.

This is a book everybody should read as it really tells the truth about Arabs and Muslims in America. I was closely involved in editing and transcribing interviews for the book and I know it is all done with love and devotion to our country. I am not an Arab or a Muslim myself but I feel that 99.9% of Muslim immigrants are patriotic citizens of the United States, as am I. I believe all Americans will realize that after reading this book.
